1 CARILLION CHARITABLE FUND EMPLOYEE NOMINATION GUIDANCE Scope and purpose This guidance for making Carillion Charitable Fund ( Fund ) nominations applies across the Carillion Group. It explains: What is the Carillion Charitable Fund? Who can apply? When can I apply? What organisations can I nominate to receive funds? What can the funding be used for? How do I send in my nomination? How do we assess the nominations? When will I know if my application is successful or not? My application was successful what happens next? My application was not successful can I apply again? How can I get more help and advice? What is the Carillion Charitable Fund ( the Fund ) The Carillion Charitable Fund (the Fund) is one of the most popular and effective ways that Carillion makes a responsible and sustainable financial contribution to charities worldwide that matter to our people. A Charities Committee Working Group administer the Fund which: Pays up to 80 organisations 500 each (or equivalent value), twice a year; Delivers our people s passion to support a wide range of charities and organisations that are chosen by our people worldwide; Demonstrates that we commit to fostering strong relationships with the communities in which we live and work; and Strengthens our reputation and supports our future growth as we invest in our local communities and address social issues across the world; Who can apply You can nominate one charity for each round of funding if you are an employee of Carillion or a Carillion Joint Venture. We prefer that you send us your nomination yourself. But if this isn t possible (say, you can t access a computer) you can apply on behalf of someone else, as long as you state who you are nominating for when you apply. When can I apply? We ll let you know the two application deadline dates each year by , through Round Up, Yammer and in Team Talks. Continued Rev /08/2016 Page 1 of 5

We welcome nominations world-wide, but we will give preference to organisations that are: Within Carillion countries of operation (such as UK, MENA, Canada and Caribbean); and In countries where we employ a significant number of people, such as India. We will not support funding nominations for: Individuals; Sole traders; Profit-making organisations; Party political activity; or Religious activities.

It will help you to help write about: What the funds will be used for; and The impact our donation will have. How do we assess the nominations?

This will include confirming that annual accounts are submitted to the Charity Commission, and the status of trustees. Our Carillion Group Charities Committee will approve the final decisions. When will I know if my application is successful or not? We will you around five to six weeks after the nomination window has closed to let you know if you ve been successful or not.

We may contact the charity or organisation directly to invite them to publicise our donation. This might include taking photographs or a press release. You will not be able to present the cheque to your charity yourself but you can contact them to arrange a presentation ceremony. We will collate the feedback from you and the charities to use as evidence of the work that is supported by the Charitable Fund. We will request the successful charities and organisations to complete the Carillion Charitable Fund Donation Feedback Form, via the Carillion employee who nominated them. My application was not successful can I apply again? We understand that you ll be disappointed if we decide not to support your nominated cause this time. However we can only support 80 nominations at a time. You re welcome to send another nomination during the next round of the Carillion Charitable Fund.
